Trump says he spoke to Virgin Islands' 'president' -- which is him

14 October 2017

He was likely referring to meetings and calls he had with U.S. Virgin Islands Gov. Kenneth Mapp.

"And I left Texas, and I left Florida, and I left Louisiana, and I went to Puerto Rico", Trump stated.

Later on, he added, "The Virgin Islands and the president of the Virgin Islands, these are people that are incredible people".

President Trump said amid a discourse Friday that he'd as of late met with the President of the U.S. Virgin Islands - which is actually him. "They've suffered gravely and we'll be there-we're going to be there".

During a speech at the Value Voters Summit, Trump claimed to have met with the president of the Virgin Islands, even though he is the president of the US Virgin Islands because they are a US territory.

"It's not even a question of a choice, we don't even want a choice". The official transcript of his speech, which was released by the White House, crossed out the word "president" and corrected it to "governor".

Trump on Friday addressed the USA government's response to Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. It could be entirely possible that the President had a conversation with himself while he was visiting the Virgin Islands.

Did Trump think he met with a foreign leader at that time?

Energy Secretary Rick Perry suffered a similar gaffe on Thursday when he mistakenly referred to Puerto Rico, a USA territory, as a country during a House Energy and Commerce hearing. Just a day before, Energy Secretary Rick Perry referred to Puerto Rico as a country during a House Energy and Commerce subcommittee hearing.
